What Causes Spinal Cord Injuries?
As the spinal cord is merely a tube of nerve tissue—not the bone spine that surrounds it—it can actually be surprisingly easy to damage it in an accident. A blow that would be considered quite minor elsewhere on the body can permanently harm the spinal cord. If you have been injured and you think it is affecting your back in any way, be sure to get medical assistance as soon as possible.
Accidents and incidents that can lead to spinal cord damage include:
Permanent Consequences of Spinal Cord Injuries
If you are feeling any soreness in your back or experiencing strange sensations along your spine, you cannot afford to brush them off as some sort of temporary problem. The reality is that they could be just the beginning of a major spinal cord injury. Without medical attention, something like a slight twinge could escalate into a lifelong problem.
The consequences of spinal cord damage are usually permanent ailments, such as:
- Chronic back pain
- An inability to sit or lie down without pain
- A lack of mobility
- A loss of muscular control
- Numbness in extremities
Having to take care of the symptoms of a spinal cord injury is sure to be costly. In order to avoid having to pay out of your own pocket for the treatments required, you need to consider taking legal action as soon as possible.

Wonderful firm! We have worked with other attorneys in the past and Mike and Tim blew us away. If you have a brain injury in the State of Ohio, you NEED attorneys who are experienced in TBI cases, not just motor vehicle accidents or other personal injury matters. It makes a huge difference having an attorney who understands the medical, emotional, and financial issues a family suffers after a TBI. They are professional, compassionate, and great communicators. I would recommend this office to anyone.- Suzanne
Attorney Jon Stoudt is the best lawyer I've ever worked with. He did everything he could to help me. From the start, Jon was very responsive and always explained everything in terms I could easily understand. Jon's staff was also kind and responsive. I highly recommend Jon and would use him again in the future. Several months after being done with my case, another lawyer, handling a different part of the case, commented on how well Jon handled my civil suit.- Jillian
From the very beginning and to the very end of a long process, Mr. Rourke and his team were extremely compassionate, knowledgeable and friendly. I found them to be honest and easy to communicate with, day or night, weekday or weekend. Mr. Rourke was always professional but at the same time made you feel important and took as much time that was needed to explain the many steps in this process. Everyone of his team were very respectful and caring of everyone in my family involved in our case. I will have an admiration for Mr. Rourke and his team for the remainder of my life.- Kelly
Jonathan Stoudt gave us excellent counsel during our time with him.- Cathy

He managed the complicated insurance and settlement to the best outcome. His team always treated me with respect. I would highly recommend Mr Mahler and his team. Thank you.- Cathy B.
I suffered physical injuries and a concussion from an auto accident in December of 2020. The team, from receptionist to attorneys, were nothing less than stellar, professional, kind, and hard working. The accident and aftermath were extremely stressful; but the Rourkes, Michael Senior and Michael Junior, helped me navigate the process while I focused on healing. For me, recovery from the accident was the most important part of the process. While I worked on recovering, Rourke and Blumenthal worked on negotiating a fantastic settlement for me. I will forever be grateful for their help!- Maggie S.
